what would you like to stop doing?

When someone has the good sense and conviction to stop doing what’s not working for them, well, it calls for a national holiday. The brilliance of simplification needs to be celebrated!

It often goes like this:

I’m going to stop:

“Being stingy with myself.”
“Worrying what others will think of me and just go for it.”
“Worrying that I will be called out as a fraud. (I have classic impostor syndrome.)”
“Worrying so much.”
“Worrying that other people are mad at me.”
“I’d like to stop being so fucking self-conscious.”
“Working with that client — every time I see her name in my in-box, I get a sick feeling in my stomach.”
“Cleaning my kids’ rooms for them.”
“Planning every date with my man when, really, I want him to plan our dates.”
“Undercharging, underearning, underselling myself.”

I’ll add to the list. I would like to stop staying up too late, like, so late that I look at my Sonicare electric toothbrush and think, I’m so glad you do the work for me. I’d like to stop losing my shit with inept customer service people who are not only robotically dis-empowered to act with commonsense, but who are entirely numb to the options of excellence (see, clearly I have hangs up with mediocrity and policy.) I would like to stop thinking that THAT pair of shoes will change the course of my life. I would like to stop making excuses for not going to more concerts, more live music events and more theatre. I would like to stop thinking that if So-and-So gets over it, THEN I’ll get over too.

Now….may we turn our “would like to stop’s” into done deals. Close your eyes and beam out from your heart great waves of liberating love to everyone reading this, that we may turn away from that which holds us back, and start doing more of that which pulls us forward.

Stop. And…start.

Ever true,

So, what would you like to stop doing?

It’s not always self-sabotage. It’s just…what it takes.

Lightwork can be a fight. If you think being on the “spiritual” side of progress guarantees you harmony, then either you haven’t been at it long enough or you’ve been playing it safe. Harmonizing, healing, serving, shining…it’s messy work. Beautiful. Worth it. But messy.

Are-you-tired

Are you tired? Or just really (justifiably) angry?

Of course there are times — perhaps entire years, when we are bone-baked exhausted. But being fed up is not the same as being fatigued. In the seasons when we are vivacious and brimming with life, we can’t let ourselves slip into the reflex of heaviness.

A question for your growth

A question for your growth (that has nothing to do with quick, easy or “proven.”)

Here’s the most powerful question (that we too often forget) to ask ourselves when we’re on the hunt for solutions: “But… what suits me?”

Deep Positivity Danielle LaPorte

“Deep positivity” vs. “positive thinking”

If there could be a slogan for manifestation theory, this would be it: Energy follows thought. Energy follows thought. Energy follows thought. And by the way…energy follows thought. Manifestation happens from the mind.

The Ultimate and Immediate Why:
Swallowing fresh water,

The lie of inadequacy.

We’ve got to fall for some lies to get to our truth. The Lie of Inadequacy. It goes like this…“You were born defective, not good enough, flawed.” nooo! Erase erase. Blow it UP.

Loving yourself Danielle LaPorte

Loving yourself…when you hate yourself.

If “love” is confusing, then “SELF-love” can be mystifying. So I’m pressing pause on the self-love conversation to insert the word compassion… The feel of “compassion” is more direct and melting for most of us. So let’s start there. Because…

[VIDEO] You are the Guru

NOBODY knows better than you what’s right for you. NOBODY. Let me say what I really mean: NOBODY.
Advice? Get some. Oracles? Consult them. Friends? Worship them. Actual gurus? Honour them. Final say? YOU. All you. No matter what.

The best self-help is self-compassion.

The best self-help is self-compassion. When you give yourself credit for making it this far in life—and still being a Gentle Soul—then you’ll know the Truth of Love. When, in a courageously still moment you hear yourself say, “I have everything I need right now,” then you’ll know the Truth of Faith.

The Courageous Minority vs. the road to mediocrity (which is always really…safe.) Safe. The road to mediocre is always really…safe. And in terms of fulfillment, “safe” is really, really dangerous.
